New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly. Last month, Somerset Operating Company, a subsidiary of Riesling Power LLC, submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) to waive the state's required, 180-day notice to close the Somerset Station, allowing the facility to be retired on February 15, 2020. Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

Northeast, N.Y. and Ontario Could Smooth Inter-regional Power Flow

LCG, July 18, 2002--A committee will be created to discuss possible ways in which rules and market structure can bring together the wholesale power markets of the New England, New York and Ontario independent system operators, the ISO's said Wednesday.

The committee will be charged with developing a single or separate day-ahead markets that can promote the buying of power among ISO-New England), NYISO, and Independent Electricity Market Operator of Ontario (IMO). Issues to be discussed also include congestion management, maintenance planning for power generation and transmission lines, and inter-regional utilization of supply reserves.

A plan is expected from the committee by next May. The New York and New England ISO's have begun discussions on forming a joint regional transmission organization (RTO), and anticipate filing their plan in August.
